What Antivirus is already installed ? - installation of Viruscan will automatically remove a wide range of other 3rd party AV products during the installation process.

Hi,

Is the Old AV deployed stand alone on the machines? If yes, then you need to remove it from the Control panel and uninstall it. then clean the registry.

If it is deployed through a management server, then you need to unistall it through the server then retire the server.

By the way what it the Old AV you use?

Re: Remove Old Antivirus during Installation McAfee.

Check KB72251 - it has the master list of all products that can be unistalled by installation of Virusscan 8.8 - it does list several Kaspersky Security Products but I don't see Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 - at least not in that form

Re: Remove Old Antivirus during Installation McAfee.

we have Kaspersky Endpoint Security 2010, i have already read that KB, but can you explain the procedure that how we'll uninstall KEPS on client machine during push McAfee Agent.

Thnx in Advance.

Re: Remove Old Antivirus during Installation McAfee.

You will not be able to uninstall simply by pushing an agent to the machines - IF the McAfee Virusscan installation is able to remove the Kaspersky Product you have installed then you would need to push an agent out and then configure a DEployment task in ePO to install AV 8.8 - and that should attempt to remove any 3rd party AV products that it is aware of.

thnx for your response,we used Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for windows, we have deployed AV through management server & unfortunately we have uninstalled the old AV server, is there any other solution to uninstall Old AV on client machine when we push agent (McAfee).

Re: Remove Old Antivirus during Installation McAfee.


Excluding files and processes from AV scanning is a totally differnet question so I suggest that you open a new discusion thread with that question or first of all search the existing threads as there are plenty discussion AV Exclusions.

This may not relate to Corporate Products Removal. However here is a list of Removal Guides for Kasperky.
